Schultzs’ pancake breakfast flips into annual community gathering

Ken and Eleanor Schultz hosted their 30th annual Pancake Breakfast and Campout on the weekend.

Ken and Eleanor Schultz hosted their 30th annual Pancake Breakfast and Campout on the weekend.

It originally started as their “Good Morning Neighbour” pancake breakfast, where many neighbours came for breakfast and a few family and friends camped over for the weekend.

It gradually expanded over the years to include many more activities and people from a distance. This year, there were 20 RV units camping, along with one tent.

Several local people who weren’t camping took in activities, as well.

On Saturday evening, Irene Brooker played the organ for the campfire sing-a-long and B.J. Smith entertained the guests with some of his cowboy poetry. At dark, there was a fantastic set of fireworks that were enjoyed for miles around.

On Sunday morning, following the pancake breakfast was the ninth annual Great Endiang Balloon Race. Hopefully, some of the balloons will be found and reported back to Ken and Eleanor. The always popular Frisbee golf filled the afternoon.

Thanks to Ken and Eleanor for their hospitality and for an enjoyable weekend.

We extend sympathy to the family of Anna (nee Petrussa) Jones on her passing on July 18 in Stettler. John and Anna Jones farmed for many years in the Byemoor area, where they raised two sons, Mark and Miles. The funeral was held in Stettler on Monday, with the burial at Byemoor. Our thoughts are with all the family members.

Congratulations to Lenard Schofer and Rebecca Fritz on their marriage on Saturday at the Schofer farm. The yard was a pretty setting for a wedding thanks to Carolin’s green thumb. The reception and dance were held in Stettler.

Lenard is the son of John and Carolin Schofer and grandson of Len and Betty Schofer and Helen Steen. Best wishes to the newlyweds for a long and happy marriage. They will be living on the Schofer farm north of Byemoor.

Get-well wishes go out to Keith Blackman, who got home Friday following a week stay in the Red Deer hospital where he required surgery after a farm accident. Hope you are on the mend now, Keith.

Keep in mind that Gary Fjellgaard is coming to Endiang on Friday evening.

Tickets are $20 to see the Juno Award-winning artist. Call Ruth at 403-585-8379 for tickets or to receive more information.

We are pleased to report Evelyn Walker has been transferred to the Stettler hospital from Calgary, where she is recovering from open-heart surgery. Hope you are home soon, Evelyn.

Jaymie Wasdal was honoured with a bridal shower in Byemoor on Sunday evening, where she received many useful gifts. Jaymie and Travis Clouston will be married in September.

Congratulations to former Endiang residents Nat and Alvina Buchwitz, now of Hanna, who celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary Sunday.

Edwin and Nola Gutsche of Calgary spent the weekend camping at Webber’s Corner.

Ruth Fowler was off to the Yukon to judge a horse show at Whitehorse.

Happy 50th birthday to Debbie Grams, who celebrated the Big Five-O a week early with a weekend get-together.

Thought for the day — A jury is 12 people who determine which client has the better lawyer.
